Kids learn best when they are having fun and Kickstarters delivers just that!
SSJYSL's 2023 Kickstarter program
Kickstarters is designed for boys and girls born between 01/01/2017 and 7/31/2019.
Our program draws on the research-based principles outlined by US Soccer. Players develop skills while playing games that require each of them to have a ball at their feet for most of the training sessions, and more touches on the ball = more skill development!
Kickstarters consists of two practice sessions during the week and a “game” on Saturday.
Practice days will be Mon/Wed, Tue/Thu or Wed/Fri at Stratford School, located at 6670 San Anselmo Way San Jose, CA 95119. Practice times are usually between 5:00-6:00pm.
If you have a preference of which practice days, please note this on your registration form. You may request to play with a friend if they are in the same age group. Kickstarters is Coed. NO REQUESTS ARE GUARANTEED
On Game Days, each team will play small sided games against another SSJ team that will allow them to show off their skills and start to develop the understanding and intuition needed to be ultimately successful.
There are no referees at this age. By having small sided games, the players will have more touches on the ball, make decisions, evaluate the results of those decisions, and over time will develop a solid understanding of the tactical aspects of the game.
- Flexible practice times making it easier to fit your schedule
- Standardized Age Appropriate Curriculum and Training Methodology
- Focus on Individual Skill Development (while having fun)
- Parent Participation opportunities
